Possible to get P155E w/failed idle actuator?
So, as the title suggests.
Changed all 10 plugs the other day, started up very nice and idled smoother than before...not surprising, if I had to guess the plugs hadn't been changed since the first Obama term. Went to go for a drive, going up a hill toed into the throttle a bit and immediately got the full complement of standard errors you get with failed idle or throttle actuators. RPM limited all the way down to 2500 rpm, which is borderline dangerous. Quick and dirty scan with Automatic gave me P155E, limped it over to my friend's house in town and used Carly to grab a real scan - one of the codes was 2B0E, failed bank 2 idle actuator.
Seems everyone with 155E has had failed throttle actuators, but since its a failed value by the monitoring system only, I imagine failed idle actuators could cause this too? Hope that's the case as I've already purchased 2 to replace both in case the other is also on its way.
